"Mothdust is intentionally imperfect, and through its creation, Callow have harnessed their anger and turned it into a visceral representation of those contradictions between the self and society." [10/4/18]

"'Go Down' trudges away for over five minutes, and seems to have more in common with Dinosaur Jr than Trampled By Turtles, but much slower and more methodical than you associate with either band.

—If It's Too Loud...

"Callow's instinctual, genre-fusing, exploratory sound grows and burns more brightly with each listen. This comes from the heart, it demands its audience's undivided attention and it's worth experiencing thoroughly." [8/23/18]

"Immediately striking are the evocative, nearly tortured, vocals of Moses. Knowles drawling twang is the perfect complement and gives these tracks deep visceral appeal." [11/30/2013]

—Clif - THE DADADA

"Merging through a mutual love of music, Moses and Knowles power these eight tracks with a chemistry that is undeniably present. Knowles feeds off Moses’ chops with subtle and still, evocative pairings that are the seamless contrast to Moses’ bittersweet tendencies." [11/25/2013]

"The bleakness at the edges of 'Strange'...will linger long after the track fades away. So too will the honesty of this guitar-and-drums journey into the dark." [11/05/2013]

—KDHX - Song of the Day

"Blue Spells shows off Callow’s piano-heavy art-rock style. It sounds like Nick Cave and the Badseeds being front by Dave Thomas of Pere Ubu if he had a little more of a Southern twang." [11/12/2013]

—Adam Morgan - Surviving the Golden Age

On "Philosophy": "In just over 100 seconds of perfectly judged vocal harmonies and gently subdued instrumentation, [Callow] have managed to create a sweetly sombre classic of pensive restraint and yearning melancholy that leaves palpable echoes hanging in the air long after the song has finished." [10/24/2013]

—The Mad Mackerel

"[S]trong vocals, minimal instrumentals, haunting melodies, sombre tones, and poetic lyrics work perfectly together to create a sense of mystery that is part magical and part ominous foreboding." [10/08/2013]

TVD Premiere: Callow, “Strange” and chats about vinyl

Full article

—The Vinyl District

"Red's lead vocals emote an anguished earnestness that fuel Callow's songs of struggle, sorrow, and despair, but offer a redemptive consolation.  You're in for a subtle, but moving and powerful emotional experience." [4/14/2013]

—Pat Herrera - Examiner.com

“From the sparse and atmospheric opening minutes of the album, Callow clearly focus on texture and dynamics in their song-writing, featuring subtle harmonies featuring male and female vocals which work well to provide emotional depths to the proceedings. “ [7/24/2013]

—Robbie - Indie Bands Blog

"Even with a mood set by sparse melodies and rhythms, Red’s vocals breathe a consoling comfort of disguised warmth leaving the listener moved and comforted." [3/02/2013]

—Pat Herrera - Examiner.com

“Callow = Band of Horses + Roky Erickson + Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds
Callow take an alternative historical sonic route of what punk rock would have been had it evolved from The Velvet Underground’s airy slowness rather than their minimalism.” [9/06/2012]

"This isn’t house cleaning music. It is very dark and exploratory. Light some candles –not one or two, but maybe forty—on a full moon, and think about things. Very very deeply." [3/08/2012]

—Amy Champ - Backstage Review

“The self-titled EP from Callow is four tracks of slow, white-knuckle intense, rock balladeering commanded by a one of the most ennervating rock vocals I’ve heard since Shoney Lamar.” [5/11/2011]

—Mike Gutierrez - QRO Magazine

"Callow has an electric melancholy sound with a rich energy vibe, and melodies intertwined with folk-gothic undertones...tunes such as "Come Alive," and "Dead to Me," were mesmerizing." [1/16/2011]

—Lance Ozanix - Healdsburg Patch

"A raw contralto will get you far in the indie world, particularly if you specialize in songs about heartbreak, death, and the fallout after a bad relationship. Singer Red Moses has it. Whoever did him wrong paved the way for some forceful emo-folk, buoyed by heavy chords and portentous lyrics. Don't let the name fool you." [9/15/2010]

—Rachel Swan - East Bay Express

"The word 'callow' means immature or inexperienced. But this duo comes on like the opposite of its namesake with songs like "Dead to Me," a spare but mesmerizing number elevated by lead singer Red Moses' assured vocals."  [8/18/2010]
